During Disney’s biennial exposition event, D23 Expo, there was a teaser shown for the third installment in Captain America’s solo adventures, Civil War. That took place a little over two months ago, which meant for these past two months fans have been holding their breath and waiting for the day that the trailer received it’s official release. That day is finally here fans, so you can breathe again.
Last night (as of the time this was written), both Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) were on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show, and it was announced that a “Marvel Surprise” would be airing at the end of the show, and it was described as “an early Christmas Civil War surprise.” Surely by that point everyone figured it was going to be the trailer, and thankfully it was.
The film is going to follow the source material in some ways, but not completely. Following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, another international catastrophe involving the superheroes occurs, leading the government to try to impose a new law where Super powered individuals are going to be held accountable for their actions and will need to enlist under a government task force and be told when and who can take on certain missions. And all of this is going to be happening while the heroes will be dealing with a new villain (probably Crossbones). Obviously, the film can’t contain ever hero and villain like the Graphic Novel, but there’s still a considerable amount of them, especially since this is a “solo” film for Captain America.
While we’re treated to our first look at Black Panther in action, there’s no sign of Ant-Man, and more understandably, no sign of Spider-Man. It makes sense though, showcasing him in the first teaser would be giving the fans too much, and God forbid they do something like that.
